  • Description:
    "The proposed action for this consultation is the issuance of a scientific research permit (Permit No. 21026) to Dr. Houser to authorize take of cetaceans in the form of auditory evoked potential testing on stranded cetaceans within the United States (U.S.), including on beaches, in waters, in temporary pools, or in rehabilitation facilities in order to obtain hearing range and sensitivity information. This is a renewal of his previous permit (Permit No. 16599), which authorized the same general research activities except of the use of needle electrodes, which will be discussed in more detail below. We have identified no interrelated or interdependent activities that would result from this action. The proposed issue date for the permit is March 31, 2017, and the permit would expire in five years on March 31, 2022. The take that would be authorized can be seen below in Table 1. Given that the methods for auditory evoked potential testing of mysticetes have not yet been fully developed and likely require needle electrodes, in this permit Dr. Houser is only requesting take of small mysticetes. This includes all age classes of minke and non-ESA listed gray whales and calves of all other ESA-listed mysticetes that have been deemed necessary for euthanasia or rehabilitation by the attending veterinarians. Thus, no takes of larger, juvenile or adult ESA-listed mysticetes would be authorized"--Page [2]. [doi:10.7289/V5N58JF6 (https://doi.org/10.7289/V5N58JF6)]
